Main Entry: end table
Function: noun
Date: 1851

End tables are small tables typically placed beside couches or armchairs. Often lamps will be placed on an end table.

Prior to the late 18th century, the tables used in Europe in conjunction with a settle included occasional tables, end tables, centre tables, and tea tables. By 1780, the high backed settle was being replaced by low back sofas and this led to the development of sofa tables which stood against the back of the sofa and could be used by anyone sitting on the sofa to put down a book or a cup.

One end table with glass

Eu ainda diria: mesinha auxiliar, mesinha de canto (embora nem sempre fique nos cantos...).
